I would say the first half of 74 is vastly better than 76, which is a little slow for my liking.

But judging by the reviews and my own ear 77 is when the band hit its stride of timeless classic sound. 73-summer 74, while I think it's the best of the early 70's, the sound has leaned too much in the country/folk realm to be considered in a higher caliber than the blistering psychedelic sound of 68 or the best of 77-79
